Hey everyone! We've spent the past few weeks since our trip getting back into the swing of things at home, and getting caught up on projects around the house.

Our house was previously owned by a pair of wine enthusiasts, as I may have mentioned before. One of the things this pair did was install a "temperature-controlled wine room" leading off of the laundry room.
